Marilyn has a little pooch And his name is Rover, And when he follows her to school, She'd like to bat him over. The most recent survey shows that the Ideal Man must have the follow- ing qualifications: 1. A car 2. Pleasant conversation 3. A car 4. He must be congenial 5. A car 6. He must be a good listener 7. He must have a car. lEditor's note, Sr.: Numbers 2, 4, and 6 may be omitted if the car has a radio.J if lk Ik By looking through the "Allen Re- view," I see that former McMain- ians are doing very well there. Fran- ces Fort received a high average of 9564 while many other did almost as well. Among the officers of the post-graduates are Grace Laguens, Clare Sulli, and Shirley Scanlan. From their exchange column, I bring you these two sallies: Teacher: Give me a sentence with an object, Johnny. Johnny: Teacher, you are beauti- ful. Teacher: What is the object? Johnny: A good mark. Here's to the girls--the young ones! Not too young, For the good die young And nobody wants a dead one. Here's to the girls-the old ones! Not too old, For the old dye, too- And nobody wants a dyed one. if il lk Congratulations to the "Review"! A very enjoyable magazine of heart- warming short stories, lyrical poetry, and realistic cuts. I only regret their not having a joke column for it makes it hard on this poor editor to quote-as the stories and most poems are too long. Here is a timely piece which is not so long. l Know On earth there are men Who are bitter and cruel, Who struggle like beasts In an endless duel. Who fail to see The principles of life- The road to peace Instead of strife. In the sky there are stars And planets and sun, Which with constancy Their courses run. Their closeness not marred By jealousy, Their light not dimmed By enmity. For men there's a plan As there is for stars- If links could be forged Instead of bars. lk if ik Making a good impression with its colorful red, white, and blue cover of figures representing winter sports, "The Canary and Blue" plunged into the interesting material which com- prised its book. There was a charm- ing article which, although it is writ- ten for the opposite sex, should be amusing to you. How to Lose a Girl Friend A recent issue of the "Canary" presented an article, "How to Get a Girl Friend." The "Canary" once again comes to the aid of its male wall-flowers with the five steps on how to lose a girl friend. Step 1. Introduce her to your best friend. He may be tall, dark, etc., but after having looked at you for a while she appreciates the change. If he is on some athletic team or his dad is the head of some- thing important, it helps. Step 2. If she asks you to a for- mal or sorority dance, show up in informal clothes, take her in a trol- ley, insist on being the life of the party, then escort the fair damsel to a dinner and fed her hamburgers. After that, walk her home through the dark streets and hold her hand and look at the moon while you dis- cuss Einstein's theory. This will do the trickg she will never see you again. Step 3. Brag about the date you had with a pretty blonde three years ago, or the swell times you have been having at the past five sessions of summer school. A Step 4. Sit before the fire-side with herg toast marshmallows till she is ready to burst, then hold her hand, whisper something silly in her ear, and, when she giggles, count her mo- lars and tell her how many she has. Step 5. There is no last step. By this time you have lost your girl friend. She is ready for a sanitarium or the "Court of Human Relations." It seems as though "The Canary and Blue" has a fitting description for us. We may not like it, but, then, isn't it true? A Modern High School Girl She walks with an air of authority- A boy to carry her booksg She never has a care or worry, Her greatest pride is her looks. Her face is smeared with powder, Her lips are painted red: Her waistline measures just fifteen, She doesn't look as if she's fed. And though my compliments are few, I admit we all have larksg But I'd trade my lunch and study halls If I had half her marks! Well-that is the last time that will apply to me for in a few weeks I shall be no longer a high school girl. Goodbye- Mt' Barbara. To A Lily Wilma Knight, '42 Fair lily, like a nymph of old, Thy regal beauty doth unfold In sheltered spot when gentle breeze Gaily rustles through the trees. Fifty-four E-C-H-O-E-S
